Hello everyone…and a big, big welcome, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so glad you stopped by today and I pray that as we spend some time together; we will come to see and experience a God, whose love holds no boundaries!
Yesterday…after a sleepless night; the alarm went off, after only two hours of rest. The first thought that went through my mind; is probably a thought that we all would jump the gun to, after only several hours of rest…and that would be to say… “Oh my goodness Lord, how am I going to get through this busy day?”
Once I woke up enough, to get out of bed; I began to get around and then I headed for my office, to begin the day. At first, I just sat on the daybed and starred out the window and remained quiet before God…where normally, I would have a talk with Him, before beginning my day.
As I sat there, in the quietness of that moment, I began to feel as though God had stepped in and was beginning to nudge me along. There was no music on the headset…no specific words to say or write…just an open heart…longing for God’s help.
After a few minutes; I went on Twitter and just starred at the screen and it was as if God was telling me to write through the discouraging moments; so I began to open my heart up and let God enter my spirit…and before I knew it, I was hearing that still small voice within me…coaching me along.
One thing I’ve come to see, through tough moments such as these; is that I write from the depths of my heart…the lowest part…where the hurt is, which only allows my fingers to type thoughts that are truly coming from within my own heartfelt feelings.
You know…there have been many times in the past, when I wonder why God never healed me; but then I experience moments such as these…and from there, I begin to understand His reasoning, behind everything I experience in life. One thing I know for sure…it’s the pain and difficult moments; that takes me down to His level, where I can truly experience the fullness of His presence. What a beautiful gift God has given me…and I think that if we all would allow God to use our circumstances…we’d stand amazed, as to what He could do, through these difficult moments.
I think the greatest thing I experienced yesterday…was just watching a powerful God at work within my life…for I had not asked anything of Him; but yet He came to me…out His great love and made a way, through the pain…tiredness…and a busy schedule; so I could experience more of Him…and from there…the day ended, in a way that I could have never imagined!
I hope that you have enjoyed this time that we have spent together…just as much as I have! I have truly found writing…to not only be used, for God’s honor and glory; but I have found these times to be healing to my own heart and soul.
Thanks for stopping by today…and I pray that these words will encourage you, in your daily walk with God! Take care…have a great day and I will look forward to being with you tomorrow!
Many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
